Every year, APALSA puts on a Mentorship Program to connect new students with upperclassmen. Students are paired based on their section, professional aspirations, or hobbies and interests. This year, we planned a Mentorship Mingle to kick off the start of the Mentorship Program and provide students with an opportunity to meet in a casual setting. It was a huge success! Over 70 students attended to drink bubble tea and meet their mentors and mentees for the first time. Bubble tea was provided by Tea-Do.
David Yun (New Student, 1L): “The Mentorship Mingle was a great way to meet upperclassmen in a relaxed and friendly environment. My mentor was extremely enthusiastic and eager to help and genuinely seemed to care for me. I would highly recommend this to others in the future!”
